Old and New


What is the meaning behind a wedding garter and why does the groom have to throw it away?

This tradition originated in England during the 14th century.  The Guests were eager to own a piece of the brides undergarment as it was believed to bring tremendous luck to the person who obtained it.

The grooms obviously intended to protect their bride from guests using their own measures to obtain her undergarments.  Therefore, the removal of the garter by the groom and tossing it to the gathering of people was created to appease the crowd and keep the bride safe of any potential embarrassment.

In more modern tradition, the garter ceremony is performed at the reception and it is stated that the gentleman who catches the garter along with the young lady who catches the bouquet that is tossed by the bride, are the next to be married.
